How much does it cost to post internships?
It doesn't cost anything to post internships on the website. Indiana INTERNnet is a free service. You may post an unlimited number of internship opportunities!
What kinds of internships can I post?
Indiana INTERNnet allows any high-quality internship position. The nature of high-quality is determined by the duties outlined in the employer's internship description, and the employer's commitment to enhancing the student's learning experience. If you are unsure of the quality of your positions, Indiana INTERNnet will assist you in evaluating the tasks and duties. You may post short-term, long-term, project-based, virtual, paid, and unpaid internships.
Do I need to pay interns?
Payment is not required, but industry best practices show it is strongly recommended and preferred. Here is what the U.S. Department of Labor has to say on the issue: http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs71.pdf
Can I post full time or part time positions?
No, we are an internship-only site. However, if you are trying to fill full-time or part-time positions, Indiana INTERNnet recommends you consider offering an internship as a "pre-recruiting" tool for full-time and replacement for part-time positions.
How many internships can I post?
Indiana INTERNnet has no limit to the number of internships you can post. However, each employer should carefully consider the appropriate number of interns to ensure the internship program is effective and high-quality for the interns.
Am I required to take an intern for the positions that I post?
No. If you do not find an intern that matches your interests or needs, you are not required to accept an intern via our site.
How does the system work?
Indiana INTERNnet is a high-tech and high-touch system for Indiana employers seeking interns. The high-tech portion allows employers to enter company descriptions, multiple users, internship description and requirements for the internship. If an employer's needs match the student's interests, the employer can view the resume and the student can view the internship description. Additionally, Indiana INTERNnet offers high-touch services that enable you to receive personal consultation about your internship program.
Where can the internships be located?
Indiana INTERNnet offers internship opportunities throughout the state of Indiana. The computerized system allows you to search for internships by various regions throughout the state. While some companies may have out of state locations, only Indiana internships will be approved for posting on Indiana INTERNnet.
What happens when a match is made?
When a match is made online, the employer can save the match for future use or can immediately contact a student via email or the messaging system built within Indiana INTERNnet. If a position is accepted, the employer should close out the internship by indicating the position has been filled, within the employer workspace.
Can I change my information?
Yes. You can change your information 24/7/365.
What is Indiana INTERNnet's confidentiality policy?
Can I put a link on the website?
Yes. You can enter your company web address or links to required applications.
I am having difficulty opening specific applicants' resumes. How can I access the information?
*Please note this is a temporary solution, and we are encouraging applicants to upload their resumes as PDFs, not .doc/.docx files.
- Click on employer, and log-in with your username and password.
- Scroll down on your dashboard to find the list of applicants who are interested in your internship position
- Click on the person’s name (The name should be linked.)
- Right click on Download Resume, and click Save Target As.
- A pop-up window will be displayed. It will ask you if you would like to save the file as a .zip
- Save the file as whatever name you wish. Save it to your desktop. Make sure it is still saved as a .zip, which will likely be your only option.
- When the pop-up window appears, click close. You do not need to open the file.
- Go out to your desktop, where you saved the file as a .zip. It should be on your desktop as an icon that looks like a folder with a zipper.
- Right click on the icon (the folder with a zipper). It should give you an option to "Open With." You should open with Microsoft Word. If you do not have Microsoft Word, click "Open With," "Choose Program," and open the file as a Works to Text file—whatever software you use.
